OUP HpmANtyN rPRESIDENT KEITH
E thought as a sage, he felt as a man.
Other schools have long turned envious eyes toward the Oshkosh Normal because of our President. It was with a mingled feeling of pride and regret that we learned that President Keith had been called to a larger field of work in the East. We congratulate the Normal School of Indiana. Pennsylvania, on securing a President whose voice in educational matters is not merely local, but is listened to with respect wherever leaders in education congregate; a President who in his special field, the training of teachers, is an advance agent, not a follower, for he knows how "to distinguish essentials from accidents.”
We are conscious of a deep feeling of deprivation when we think that in the years to come another school will have the benefit of his ability to act in crisis: a Junior said, “I felt I could not go to a school whose buildings were burned to the ground, but when I heard there was a President who set the machinery going again in twenty-four hours, I knew there was a place where personality is above equipment;” when we think that another group of young people will have the example of one who fits ends to needs without petty nagging, and who will receive the stimulation of a wholesome tonic at their gatherings each day which will put fiber into their flabby souls, and that they will have ever an car attentive to their wants—but why add up all our personal losses? Rather let us send sincere congratulations to the Normal schools of the ‘‘Keystone State.”

HE FACULTY of our school now numbers forty-seven men and women distinguished for their thorough preparation, for their democratic spirit, and for their loyalty to the school. Among them arc graduates of colleges and universities of the East, of the Middle West, of Canada, and of Germany—a cosmopolitan group with a clear understanding of what the world demands in education.
To the uninitiated student the word mathematics sounds cut and dried; but let him enter the department of mathematics and the hazy mathematical atmosphere becomes rarefied. By the clever instructors he is led on and on, and his mind is broadened by the depth and breadth of the subject.
A cabinet of four preside over the History and Political Science Department—each one of which is scholarly in his tastes, yet blessed with the admirable quality of common sense. This course is a vital one. The work is partly the tracing out of cause and effect in bygone years and interpreting present day occurrences in the light of conclusions drawn.
The faculty of the Training Department exerts a wide and beneficial influence upon all student teachers. The careful guiding influence and kindly critical supervision arc appreciated by all. In this group, cooperation is not only a virtue, but a reality.
The Psychology Department is one in which most of our number come in touch. Clearsightedness, definiteness of aim, and attention to details, are the oustanding things for which the two men of distinct personality in this field of work will be remembered.
Two capable insructors direct the work in foreign languages. They are both practical men with a wide experience and a thorough preparation for their work. Students in this deaprtment receive a liberal education.
The Science Department is one of the strong departments of the school. The diversity of viewpoints, of methods, and of training of the four men in this field, have given to the work its vitality and practicality.
There are two members of the faculty with whom every one—faculty members and students alike—come in touch—the librarians. Capability, accuracy, exactness, as well as willingness to aid others, are their admirable qualities.
Diversity of gifts, but unity of aim, have the sextet of women in the English Department. No fear of the dreadful thing called feminization when we name over their characteristics—logical acumen, wide vision, insight into students’ needs, and withal a bit of wit to temper the whole.
The men of the Industrial Department are marked by their wide practicality, capability, and adaptability. The realization of the acute need of passing these qualities on to students makes this department a strong unit in our school.
A quartet of women guide the Art and the Music Departments. Our school is fortunate in having persons of such great cultural attainments in these lines.

To the Alumni and Students:
TO leave the Oshkosh Normal School after almost ten years of work in it and for it, means more than does graduation. No student has ever come to his graduation day with such an interest in the school as I have today, and I doubt if any teacher, however many years of service he may ha-Oe given the school, has had his life more intimately interwoven with the life of the school than have I. My years here may have been strenuous and happy—strenuous because there xCere so many things to be accomplished, and happy because of the exceptionally fine spirit of the faculty and the students. And while many, many things remain to be done, it seems only fair for me to feel that somethings of lasting value to the school have been accomplished in the past ten years.
It will be my pleasure and privilege to be interested always in the development of the Oshkosh Normal School, and nothing would give me more satisfaction than to be able to continue to serve in some way—large or small— its interests.
And the memory of my days in this school and of the earnest, wholehearted, upstanding generations of students xOill abide with me undimmed and will inspire me through the years that lie ahead.

UT from the Normal harbor crafts of various sizes and shapes are about to set sail. The long list of passengers and the cargo to be carried can be found in the following pages. As, with a sigh for the parting, we wish each a fair voyage and a safe entrance into the desired port, we wonder, “Where lies the land to which each ship must go?”
To whatever shore it may be, each will be welcome. When one carries aboard cheerfulness, tact, sympathy, and knowledge, there is no harbor too big or too little that will not need such merchandise for her people.
May fair winds be yours, and bright stars overhead!

Page 84Where Our Young Chemists Work
Twenty industrial chemists now working in laboratories on the iron range have been prepared this year by Mr. Frank. Most of them are employed by the Oliver Company at Hibbing, Minnesota. This mining company, which is a subsidiary company of the United States Steel Corporation, is the largest iron mining company in the United States. Nearly sixty per cent of all the iron taken out of the ground in Minnesota is mined by this company. During the mining season, from April 15 to December 20, approximately 29.000,000 tons of ore are handled, a large and efficient force of chemists is necessitated.
Before the ore can be shipped to the steel mills and blast furnaces, it is necessary to know the chemical content of the ore. so that it may be sent to the proper place for its reduction to iron and steel. This must be done, because different methods of reduction require different types of ore. As the industrial chemist analyzes the ore to obtain this information, he is a very important part of the working force at the mines.
Most of the men in the laboratories of the Oliver Company are from the Oshkosh Normal. Of the twenty chemists employed each shipping season, fifteen are from our school. Of the other five, one comes from the University of Wisconsin, two from Indiana University, and two from the University of Michigan.
Hibbing is not the only town to which our young chemists go. There are one or two of them in different laboratories in Minnesota and Michigan and a few in other states. There are not enough of men to supply the calls.
With the laboratory facilities in the new building and with the increased interest in chemistry in this country, it is reasonable to suppose that thirty men will be ready to go into industrial chemistry next season. Past exoerience indicates that no trouble will be encountered in securing positions.alif (fluid rr
TKe Training Department
THE Training Department of the Oshkosh Normal we shall always remember as the place where we were schooled to meet the exigencies arising in teaching as well as to observe mere routine. One might not expect to find the training school such an intimate part of our life as it is, for our interests are socially and intellectually different from those of this department, and the use of different buildings by the two departments also intensifies the idea that the training school is complete in itself. But there is a feeling of fellowship between the Normal proper and the training school, because they both are laboring for the same desirable things.
Working in the Training School gives not only discipline, but pleasure. Most of the children coming from homes of culture have early absorbed many things which make a good foundation on which to base our work. The small classes permit us to study individual temperaments and to cultivate the aptitudes of each, while the limited number permits more opportunities for self-expression.
We enjoy the school spirit as exhibited here. One usually thinks of school spirit in connection with school yells and wearing of school colors, noticeable at any athletic event. And this is one sort of school spirit that the grammar room has. Then there is that finer element of school spirit not shown in so obvious a manner, but rather in working for your school and in remaining loyal to her after graduation; and those who have been graduated from the Training School possess this characteristic in no small degree.
In this case it is easy to trace from effect back to cause. The faculty members of the Training School are women who are thoroughly acquainted with their particular phase of work and have that intangible charm which appeals most strongly to child nature. By their careful planning and attention to the individual pupil, he becomes better able to realize along which direction his talents lie. It is they who furnish the incentive, and oftimes part of the initiative, by which a difficult object is finally conquered. The cheerful, home-like atmosphere of the grammar room and barracks with their plants and pictures but reflects the personality of the teachers. Not only docs the influence of the supervisor react on the children, but we are also reached by it. And in the days to come we shall look back on the Training School, with the wise head of this department and his strong assistants, as potent factors in our school life.

The Pipes of Pan are Calling
THE Spirit of Nature enters and proclaims to all her realm that the time for the departure of Winter is at hand, and that Spring and her attendants ought to waken to prepare for the festival and the crowning of the Queen of May. She then summons Pan, and charges him to arouse sleeping Spring that she may break the spell of Winter and bring to all the land fresh life and noble impulse. All must be in readiness for the beloved Queen.
The sweet, supplicating notes of Pan’s pipes awaken Spring. Unafraid she dares
'To dance with delicate feet On the world’s despair and defeat”
Fierce March Wind blusters. He will not give up his reign without contest. Spring patiently tries to woo him to calmness. Soft stray clouds venture forth and float quickly by. But in fitful gusts March Wind returns again and again, until at last Spring calls her attendants—the graceful bending Reeds, the skimming Swallows, the swiftly flying Bluebirds, the Golden Butterfly—who by their charm and beauty conquer boisterous Wind.
In the midst of their gladness appears April in one of her fleeting moods of melancholy. Sighing and weeping she broods over all till slowly, slowly “Snowdrops and primrose both timidly peep,
Hailing the glad new year.”
Spring and April hover near in loving greeting, till on May Day the tender buds burst forth.
The coming of the flowers reminds Pan that he ought to call together the little children, the Queen’s favorite subjects. Pan appeals to Spring for help, but Spring jealous of the Queen’s affection for the children, turns indifferently away. Pan blowing his pipes dances off alone to summon the little ones.
The first to heed the call is the Fairy of Childhood. She dances gaily here and there with Pan. beckoning to the children to join their merrymaking.
To pleasure-loving, selfish Spring as she watches them a new, a wider vision is disclosed. With open arms she hastens toward the children, and in repentance bows her head before the Fairy of Childhood. She is forgiven. Spring, and the Fairy, and Pan joyously dance together, for now all is ready for the coming of the Queen.
The pipes of Pan announce to the Queen that her subjects are awaiting her coming.
The Queen escorted by her Court enters, ascends her throne amid joyous acclamation. Spring crowns her Queen of May. The Court sings its great happiness while the Heralds make ready that the children may dance in honor of their loved Queen the symbolic dance of the May Pole.

The schools of our country have always been the stronghold of patriotism.
In answer to a patriotic impulse, which was felt by all the schools and colleges throughout our country, the Oshkosh Normal Military Company was organized. The Company has been organized on much the same principles as the other societies of the school, except that the organization is controlled by military instead of parliamentary rules.
It is the purpose of the organization to promote patriotism, to furnish physical training, and to insure to each member quick perception and prompt obedience to orders, all of which arc essentials to good citizenship.
It is planned to uniform the company and to procure arms from the United States War Department. It was impossible to obtain government equipment at this time, therefore some old rifles, part of which had been used by the infantry and part by the naval militia, were rented from private sources.
A company of ninety young men was at first organized to form a regular unit of the Wisconsin National Guard, but they were rejected by General Hol-way on account of being members of a school organization.
Drill has been held twice each week. Very satisfactory progress has been made in the school of the soldier, school of the squad, and school of the company.

To tKe Normal Volunteers
Once came the call from Sumpter's flame-lit walls— The flash lit up a thousand altar fires.
Again the call from Belgium's reddened fields,
Sow, you—oh, worthy sons of noble sires, ATTENTION!
Yours not the grinding press of tyrant's heel,
Nor brutal fist raised 'gainst the poor and weak;
To guard humanity from the conqueror's lust,
This your mission—this the end you seek.
Thousands of us envy you today.
Life is ignoble—a hateful thing—
Had it no sacrifice: and you with all of life before, What sacrifice you bring!
Go—God grant that you return—if not,
Our hearts, our tears—but on our bended knees We raise our eyes exultant that Old Normal At her country's call, sent such as these! FORWARD!
The Great Shadow
Today I cannot dream dreams:
The horrible darkness O'crhanging the world Will not let me see the gold of the stars Nor the silver of the earth.BEACH SCHOOLSljf (0uiurr
MEMORIES of school days! How many of the brightest of them are linked with a school organization! It is in the society, often, that the sincerest friendships are formed. “Together” is the keyword of the society brothers and sisters. When each member is made to feel that he has something to do, and all work in unity for the welfare of the whole, innumerable are the memories accumulated of the many helpful and pleasant hours.
Because of the broad field covered by the societies, students have ample opportunity to join those of most interest to them. The societies of Phoenix, Lyceum, Alethean, and Philakean are literary in aim. Not only to study literature, and to train in debate or declamatory work, and parliamentary procedure is the object of these societies, but also to foster a spirit of sterling sisterhood and brotherhood. Until this year the membership of Phoenix and Lyceum has been composed of both young women and young men, but early in the fall the membership of Phoenix was limited to women, that of Lyceum to men.
The band, the orchestra, and the Glee club occupy exceedingly important positions in the school life. The Glee club has presented pleasing operas and concerts of classical composers. Their success may be attributed to the enthusiasm of Miss Cundiff. Under the able leadership of Mr. Frank, director of the band and orchestra, these two organizations have developed until they have made a place for themselves in the school.
Every Tuesday three societies meet to study current events. Of these Atheneum and Current History are for young women, and Current Topics for young men. As a result of the efForts of their critics. Miss Encking. Miss Pieters, and Mr. Clow, respectively, the clubs have evolved into training schools for spirited parliamentarians.
One of the oldest organizations of the school is the Browning Club. Twice each month fifteen young women meet under the guidance of Miss Peake. Another of the older organizations is the German Circle. The special feature of this year has been the interesting accounts given by Mr. Roehm of his experiences as a student in Germany. The Dramatic club, too, has reflected its share of credit upon the school through its admirable presentation of plays.
The need of organizations for the purpose of discussing practical problems concerning certain academic subjects has been met by the formation of Penelope. De-metrian, and the Industrial Arts Society. The art of cookery and of needlecraft is the chosen occupation of the followers of Penelope; the scientific tilling of the soil that of the followers of Demetrian, and the skillful handling of the saw and hammer that of the Industrialites.
The largest societies of the school are perhaps Y. W. C. A.. Y. M. C. A., and the Marquette club. The latter organization was formed to unite the students of the Catholic faith.
So it is that the organizations gain for the school and for themselves a reputation for high ideals and commendable work.

And every chance brought out a noble knight."

THE proposed Student Building is to be built by the students, faculty, and alumni. It is not to be placed on the campus as an ornament, but as a center for all student activities that are non-professional, and as a home for all returning alumni. It will offer opportunity for getting together. It will furnish working room for debaters, student editors, class officers, societies, and athletes. There are to be pictures of prominent alumni, faculty members, and school teams. There are to be rooms devoted to the exhibition of our trophies. There is to be a lunch room where friends may be entertained. It is the fireside of the campus.
It would be a task to build such a building if only a few carried the burden, but when five thousand carry it, there is necessary only a little help from each one. It is for each to say what can be done, but with the pledge made payable over a number of years, a reasonable gift may be made.
Let all of us do all in our power to spread the Student Building idea. Although the campaign has been going only a year the response has been such that the building is now a certainty. Do your part and help get it up for the school’s fiftieth birthday in 1921, and have it done right—the Oshkosh way.

STUDENT BUILDINGvtlif Ipuiurr
WE always keep the spirit moving. Lines of interest with us are numerous. Some of them are always vital to the welfare of the school. Of school interests, none means more than the STUDENT BUILDING. It is our biggest undertaking, our largest, most unselfish social concept.
What is it? An effort for students by those who have been students— an effort to keep the memories of home sweeter and to make the hours of student association finer. To universalize home spirit! Yes. it is indeed a fine thing to strive for.
And the success of the effort?
Fire did not destroy the germ of it. War lowers, but so democratic a thing as the STUDENT BUILDING will outlast all suggestion of things imperial. We are intrenching while waiting for the horizon to clear. The students of 1917 will leave the pledges of their faith in the service of the school and their belief in the need of a student home, as did the class of 1916. as have other classes all the way from 1875.
How many are there to do the work?
From 1875 to 1917, just about 3,300 are living of all who have been candidates for an Elementary or an Advanced Course diploma.
We enlisted to secure $50,000. It means about $20 per alumnus. It is not much in proportion to the memories and benefits that life at Norma! brought! Nor is it to be made a burden, for it may be given in four parts of $5 each—one part a year until 1921.
So far, the faculty and the students have paid for the distribution of information about the building.
We have sent five communications to our friends out in the world. In round numbers. 400 graduates have either sent us cash for the Building Fund or placed their pledges in our hands, assuring a total of nearly $7,000. Our bank account, in the careful hands of Mr. Briggs, is constantly growing. Already the effort to make the building possible has renewed the memories of former days for the alumni, stimulated new interest in the school and brought us closer together. And this interest will continue to grow. We expect to see all friends promising their “bit” and sending it in year by year, until 1921 sees the fund for our MEMORIAL complete. We believe no one can fail to respond to the sentiment of Mr. Briggs, who wrote after his fourth installment of twenty-five dollars a year, “and in the same ratio until the building is complete or until I grow old.”

Page 129The Eating Clubs
Although the casual observer often believes that the club life of our school centers wholly around the literary societies and other clubs which meet once a week, the insider knows that to the average student, the eating clubs are more often the most important cog in the social system. Here three times a day—before, between, and after the strenuous sessions in the classroom—the hungry'troops gather, and, although there is much to be done in the short time allotted, still there is opportunity for many things besides the business of the hour. Here, more than at the regular societies, the real give and take spirit is developed, and here many lasting friendships are formed. With laugh and jest at each other’s
TURNER’S TOAST TASTERS”expense as well as at the idiosyncrasies of the “profs,” the hours fly by. Although short, they are the most, the happiest, and certainly the most entertaining of the day.
Turner’s, directly opposite the Elm street school grounds, is patronized exclusively by the young women. As no men of the school are allowed within its portals, accounts as to what goes on inside are rather hazy.
Mead’s, on Scott street, is a fine mixture of “highbrows" and “loafers.” Here “Harry” and “Matty,” and others among the upper ten of the intellectual crowd rub elbows with the “Mission Supporters.”
Anglim’s and Seymour’s, the two Wright street clubs, are friendly rivals along all lines. Such hot debates on the relative merits of their “eats”! Anglim’s chocolate pie and Seymour’s liver and bacon are both perfection. Seymour’s harbors the championship cater of the school, in “Tubby” Schubert, but Anglim’s have other celebrities, which, they assert, offset this.

THE football season of 1916 adds another page of hard-fought gridiron battles to the athletic history of the Oshkosh Normal School. Although to an ousider, the page is not a very brilliant one, to the students of our school it means a great deal. They realize that though we were frequently defeated, we lost because our men lacked experience rather than the fighting spirit of the school.
Our captain-elect, Novitski, did not return to school this year, but we found a very able substitute in the person of Francis O’Connell.
Coach Meyer’s early call for practice resulted in bringing thirty enthusiastic men to compete for places on the team. It was found, however, that only four veterans were present to answer to the call. The other men, for the most part, had had no experience. This, of course, was a handicap very hard to overcome.
The men worked overtime in preparation for the first game with St. Norbert's on September 30. Although our team fought hard the final whistle found us on the small end of a 40-0 score.
With two weeks of additional training our team took on the strong Ripon aggregation. October 16. Our team showed marked improvement in this game, but were unable to hold Ripon at crucial moments. The final score was 61-0. O’Connell and MacNutt kept up their good reputation throughout the game.
On October 30, Platteville invaded our territory. This game proved to be the best of the season. Both teams played excellent football. But for a triple pass by Platteville in the third quarter the game would have ended in a tie score instead of 6-0. Sweeney and O’Connell were our best ground gainers. Abe’s punting kept the ball in Platteville’s territory most of the time.

On November 3. our team journeyed to Whitewater. This game was another penalty for our lack of experienced men. In spite of our 2-0 lead in the first half, the final whistle found us defeated by a score of 28-2.
On November 11, Milwaukee met us on our field for the last game of the season. The game, played in a snow storm, was very slow. We were unable to defeat the southern champions, but held them to a score of 14-0.
Although the season was one of many stinging defeats, the number of men who have received training in the game this year, and who will return to defend the colors next year, argues well indeed for a 1917 championship.

Harry was a good line man. and could always be depended upon to make an opening in time of need.
“Mac” was one of our strongest men in the line. He will be missed on our 1917 team.
ALBERT STRASSBERGER Fullback
Strassy’s splendid work on the defense was a strong factor in stopping the on rushes of the enemy.
Page H9NORMAN SCHUBERT Right Half Unfortunately, injuries kept Schubert out of the game most of the time so that he could not show up to his best advantage, however, his work was always of the best caliber.
GUY LARSON Center
Guy came to us with a reputation and soon won the favor of coach Meyer.
ENOS BARNARD Enos was handicapped by a lack of experience. but soon developed into a strong defensive player. As captain of the team next year we will wish him luck.
ROY ABRAHAMSON EDWARD WILLIAMS
Left End Halfback
“Abe” delighted in smashing interfer- “Greeney” played nearly every posi-
ences and nailing a man behind the line tion. and made good at each, of scrimmage. His toe kept the ball in the enemy’s territory in times of need.
rage 150QUIREN GROSSEL Guard
Although inexperienced, Grossel played like a veteran. With '.he knowledge gained this year he will be a valuable man for defensive and offensive work.
CHARLES SWEENEY Right End Charles was responsible for many long end runs and was equally valuable in open field tackling. He will be an excellent man next year.
EDWARD MELSNA Right Tackle
“Ed” helped greatly to strengthen the left side of the line. His weight will help in making the team next September.
ED SAGER Guard
Sager worked hard and was a good football man. He charged low and hit hard. He should have played earlier in the season.THE jinx that followed our football through their unsuccessful season remained to furnish defeats for our basketball team. Coach Meyer and captain Kunz made an early call for men, and on December 1, thirty aspirants reported at the gymnasium. Among the men, who gave us reason for an optimistic outlook, there were four veterans of 1916. A schedule was soon made out, and two games were played with the Federals at Neenah. These games showed where the weak spots were. After a few nights of practice the first official game was played with the Bushey Business College on our floor. The Appleton boys were clearly outclassed, and the final whistle found them defeated by a score of 26-10.
Our next game was played with Lawrence College at Appleton. Although our boys played a good brand of basketball, they were finally defeated by a close score.
On January 5, the team went to Stevens Point, where it met its worst defeat, 33-18. Though this is a new game on our schedule we hope it will be an annual event.
Our next opponent was the strong Ripon crew that held Wisconsin to a score of 24-23. We were defeated by a score of 33-19; but when we consider the fact that Ripon later won the state championship, we can view the game in the light of a victory.
The conference of Normal Schools opened with a game at Milwaukee, on January 26. That the two teams were evenly matched is shown by the fact that the final score was decided by a free throw by Milwaukee in a five-minute overtime session. The final score was 17-16.
Somewhat disheartened by the defeat received from Milwaukee our team went »n to Whitewater, Saturday, January 27. At the end of the first half we were on the winning side of a 14-19 score. The effects of the strenuous Milwaukee game were evident in the second half, however, and we were defeated by the final score of 38-2. Whitewater later won the championship of the Southern Conference.
Our next game was played with Lawrence on our floor. Our team outclassed the Lawrence crew throughout the game, which ended 19-15 in our favor. Kunz and Mann starred in the game.
The last game on our floor was against Ripon, February 4. We were unable to defeat tnis team, although we led by a good margin in the first naif. The final score was 28-16.
February 15, orn team went on the last trip for conference games. It was bea'en by Platteville by a 25-13 score in a hard-fought game. La Crosse had the honor of scoring the highest number of points of the season when its team handed us a 43-26 defeat in our last conference game.
Our season ended as it began, with our team at the small end of the score. Marquette administered the last defeat on its floor. The score was 24-16.
As will be noticed, all of our conference games were played away from home. Had the finances of our Athletic Association permitted, we should have played four conference games on our home floor, and our team would doubtless have finished near the top of the record instead of the bottom.
As Irwin Wendt has been elected to pilot the 1917-M8 team, we shall look to "Jimmie” for a championship.

Class Athletics for Men
IT has always been the ambition of our coach to see all of the men in school taking part in some line of athletics. In the realization of this ambition he has been more successful this year than ever before. Much interest was shown in all forms of intcr-class athletics, and, as a result, all contests were spirited and interesting.
The Juniors were victorious in football and basketball, which signifies that our best athletes will be back to make history for the school next year. They won the football game by the score of 13-6 by superior playing in the last period of the game. Much credit for this victory is due Mr. Polk, who spent a great deal of time in coaching the team.
For the first time in the history of the school, a Junior-Senior basketball game was played. As in the football game, the Juniors won in the final period. The score was 17-13.
The Class Basketball Tournament was run on the elimination plan. The following shows the standing of the teams. The winners received numerals from the Athletic Association:
Junior Highs ................................ 3

Women’s Basket Ball
THE Girls’ Basketball Tournament proved as great a success this year as in other years. The teams on the whole were well matched, except the Grammar Room Team was handicapped by the size of the players, but the spirit and pluck deserve unqualified commendation. In the first game, the College-High School team defeated the Juniors The Seniors won over the Grammar Room and the Juniors. The Grammar Room was then defeated by the College-High School and also by the Juniors. The College-High School and the Seniors being tied, played off the championship game. The Seniors won the cup. The players on the championship team receive official letters.
The Junior and the Grammar Room teams were coached by Miss Hyde, and the College-High School and the Senior teams by Miss Lane. Both coaches may well be proud of the excellent work of the teams.

“Front!” “Slim” Zicgclbaucr in the second rank jumped and stood on tiptoe looking over Oscar Arvidson’s shoulder to see what it was all about.
“Front. Mr. Ziegelbauer, means face the front and stand at attention. It does not mean that Oscar’s necktie has slipped out of his vest.” Captain Birely’s sarcasm was not lost on “Slim.” who now sank shamefacedly into line.
Will Rcindl yawned and promptly lay down for a nap. A sharp voice aroused him, however, as Lieutenant Abrahamson assisted him back to the line.
Alley Cook, looking mildly interested, stood with hands in pockets.
“Mr. Cook, 1 said Attention. Straighten up. Look soldierly.”
In an injured manner Cook took the crook out of his back.
“That’s better. Now, mark time!”
Lee Pickett began to wave an imaginary baton, but soon saw that the rest of the company were moving their legs up and down like pistons. Seeing Captain Birely’s frown, he dropped his hand and tried to kick a hole in the ground as he thought the others were doing. Captain Birely was peeved.
“Company, halt! One—two! Pickett, marking time is not a new method of digging trenches. Merely lift your feet up and down and put them down again. Don’t try to drive them into the ground, it’s apt to be too discouraging a task. Now again. Mark time!"
Everything went along well for a minute. The officer continued his drill.
Auldin Smith felt his face gingerly, but concluding that he had still only one, looked about him to see what his comrades were doing. Observing that all were facing toward the right, he decided to do likewise.
“Mark time! Forward, march! One—two; one—two; left, right!"
The company moved forward. I say moved, because they did not march. The exasperated officer tore his hair in his wrath.
“Company halt!” he bellowed savagely. "When I say march I mean march, not crawl! Take a thirty-inch step to my count, starting with the left foot first. Now—mark time—forward march! One—two; one—two; hip. hip,—
“Hooray!” finished one or two of the campany, and then sniggered.
What officer would not have quivered with rage?
“One more infringement of the rules, and I’ll have you court-martialed!”
Some members of the company halted to listen, while the others marched hippingly on. The officer watched them in profane silence and then burst out:
“Come back here, you idiots! We’ll have to start over again!”
They straggled back. The captain took a fresh grip on his patience.
“Now. fall in!”
Maurice Brown promptly obeyed by stumbling and falling into a puddle. The captain bitingly commended Brown’s literal obedience.

The next fifteen minutes passed without bringing further difficulties. The captain was pleased. He assembled the company.
"Now, let’s sec what you can do in the manual of arms. Get your guns.”
The order was obeyed. Erwin Lcgrcid was selected to demonstrate his knowledge. "Mr. Legreid, execute the orders as given. Present arms!”
"Shrimp” looked mystified; then, remembering something about what’s “fair in love and war,” put his gun against the wall and extended his arms to an imaginary sweetheart. "Have you gone stark mad, Legreid? Achtncr, try it.”
Edward Achtncr stepped up and stood at attention.
"Present arms!” Achtner obeyed.
“Right shoulder arms!”
Achtner placed the gun on his right shoulder and put his left arm over it. The captain then demonstrated the proper execution of the order.
"Order arms!” was the next command.
Arvidson jerked out a piece of paper and a pencil.
"How many and what make?” he asked in a business-like tone.
Captain Bircly ate him up with one look, and his face registered subsequent acute indigestion.
Achtner hesitated and then inspected his gun with suspicious care.
"1-1 think it is in order, captain,” he said doubtfully. Shall I order the rest?”
"No. never mind, Achtncr,” said the captain with painful politeness. “Lieutenant Abrahamson, give a demonstration of the manual of arms.”
After Abrahamson had complied, the captain again took charge.
“Drum corps, step forward!” Five drummers stepped up.
The drummers drummed drummingly.
"Company mark time!”
The company thumped steadily in unison until Vern Naset, thinking he was playing for a dance, began ragging the army roll enthusiastically. The company was hugely discomfited, and the captain thoroughly disgusted.
"Halt!” All halted.
"Take your guns back. We’ve had enough for today. Fall out!”

Tke Transformed Junior
’Twas many and many a month ago that a Junior I did sec A-walking up the Normal path as bold as bold could be;
For he had come to our city fair, on that September day.
To enter the dear old Normal School and his tuition pay.
He wore an ancient suit of grey, his trousers were not pressed:
It seemed as if he must have slept since last he’d up and dressed;
And as he waited in the line and chewed his little straw,
The passersby—they stopped and looked, wond'ring at what they saw.
The months flew by, ’twas spring again, and on an April day That I did spy that self-same "rube” as on the grass I lay;
And as 1 looked, I blinked my eyes and shaded them for fear The dazzling sight would injure them and blind me for a year.
He wore a suit of varied hue, his collar was the kind
That holds a fellow’s chin so high his head hangs back behind.
The rest of his swell outfit was of model ’17,
And by his side there tripped along a little social queen.
So that is what we do to them in this old Oshkosh "Norm.”
We take them as they come to us in every shape and form,
But when we send them out again after a year is gone,
They look as if they never had even seen a lawn.
Their trousers now arc always creased, the straw is thrown away. They loaf around with careless grace throughout the livelong day.
So that is what is done to them within one little year,
That is the education for which they’ve paid so dear.

River Falls? No Lika Da Plas
THE O. N. S. band left Oshkosh for River Falls one wintry afternoon in March. Many of the members remember the day, no doubt. Mr. Frank had charge of the ill-fated crew. His first difficulty came that night in trying to get his charges to berth. It was impossible to corral them all, for many of them sleepily insisted that they were not “shlcepy.” Three, Brown, Hintz, and Naset, were obdurate, and three others were already asleep in the day coach. Mr. Frank gave them up as being three of one and a quarter dozen of the other.
The sleeping car is always a place of wakefulness and difficulties, and so it proved to be this night. The order for quiet had been given when Walker’s voice was heard:
“Porter, bring the ladder. I want to get out of Heaven.” Others have described an upper berth differently, but we shall not argue the matter.
Zyndler heard the appeal from an upper berth, and promptly cried:
"Oh, never mind the ladder. Here’s the sky hook. If you fall, you’ll see the stars.” After the car had again been silenced, slumber prevailed. Slumber seems to have acquired the habit of prevailing nights.
At Marshfield, Pickett presented himself and was immediately forced to play for the reunion, at which the city of Appleton was dancingly represented.
Seven o’clock the next morning, the sleepers (not cars but band members) emerged from their berths. Many were celebrating the earliest uprising of the band by yawning and stretching, and others looked as though they had lost their good humor in their berths.
Outside the elements were raging: there was weather in great quantities—a reunion of the snowflake family. Every member had made it a point to be present with a capital P. The band members agreed that they were fond of weather, but that they preferred it in smaller doses. The train was stalled a number of times because the kind-hearted engineer hated to jostle the pretty snowflakes too rudely. It is said that punctuality is the politeness of kings; if so, it can be safely said that when the train reached Hudson it belonged to the lowest class of society in existence.
A hungry band left the train at Hudson, and on the trip along the platform at the depot, became very chummy with a number of young overgrown drifts. As Mr. Frank found that River Falls could not be reached, he decided that the band should honor the Minneapolis and St. Paul people with a visit. It is supposed that he wished to enter into a conspiracy involving the Governor of Minnesota, to put the United States Weather Bureau out of commission, but nothing can be proved.
St. Paul and dinner were reached almost simultaneously, and the city’s food supply suffered in consequence. Later all went sight-seeing, then returned for assembly at 3:00 P. M. They found that River Falls was still only a figment of some fanatic’s fancy as far as reaching it was concerned. Some expressed the opinion that the place was mis-named; it should have been called Heaven, because it was so hard to reach.
Of course, there was nothing to be done. The band disbanded and hastened off in smaller bands. Some went to the theaters in St. Paul, others to visit Minneapolis. Later a number of them attended a dance—and there was a shooting! The man who was shot promptly lost interest in subsequent proceedings, but he was only one of many. The Nor-malites were extremely anxious to make themselves conspicuous by their absence, and all strolled with artistic abandon through the nearest exit.
iMost of the musicians went to bed that night, and in spite of the lack of practice slept very well indeed.
I'aKe 173£t?r (()uturr
The eight A. M. assembly found that River Falls was still a hard port to reach in a storm. Some of the fellows decided to go back to Oshkosh. Most of the rest left for Merrill. They spent the entire day and the greater part of their vocabularies on the way.
On the train the Milwaukee and the Platteville contingents were encountered. The three bands split up into fives and made the coach aisle look and sound like a Milwaukee street during a convention of The Cerman Bands Association of America. This was before the war or the Normalites might have been arrested as spies.
At Merrill another train afflicted with Stallitis was found in the northwest corner of an exceedingly ambitious drift. There being no alternative the Oshkoshians concluded to stay awhile. They set about to make life livable for themselves by renting a hall and advertising a dance. Net profits 40c. each. Train travel and robbery made this addition to the treasury a very welcome one.
Those who had remained in St. Paul became impatient. Some started for Oshkosh via Stevens Point, where Mike Mueller intends to make his future home. At Merrill, deserting began again. Christ went home via Milwaukee, and Pickett via Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls. Mr. Frank called up from Oshkosh and told the boys to follow Pickett, and those who were broke would receive car fare later. The boys decided against this move.
Naset deserted next, and worked his way home through Elroy and Madison, singing It’s a Long Way to Dear Old Oshkosh. The rest got away late in the afternoon, and reached Oshkosh in time to miss a few more classes.

When Miss Harris turns on the shiftless would-be pedagog with her justify-your-existence-on-the-earth look in her eye.
When he says to Miss Pieters: “A party platform is a sort of bench that speakers stand on when campaigning.”
When the tithers are brought to book before the three august personages, President Keith, Miss Webster, and Miss Peake.
When the Senior, casting sheepish glances, is detected, and the professor says: “No puppy love here. That’s something that can’t be standardized in a Normal School.”
When the scarlet fever germs cry:

Alary had a little man
Who went to Normal School.
He was a strong Industrialite Who loved his nail and tool.
She walked with him to school each day— It quite became the rule!
It made the students laugh and laugh To sec them moon about at school.
“What makes her love the Industrialite?” The eager co-eds cry.
"Perhaps we’d best ask Mary why,”
The teacher did reply.
I love the Industrialites for their skill;
They work both at school and at home with a will; They make household furniture, jewelry, and all That the heart of a girl most completely enthrall ; But above all I love them, for this they can do— They can rival Miss Casteen in cooking a stew.
So when we get suffrage and start in to vote,
Here’s one who can his time to housework devote.

On Collecting Taxes
When I consider how my strength is spent And half my time in this, my school, employed In tax collecting, my youth unenjoyed.
My talents undeveloped, though my soul is bent To serve my school, and leave behind a name,
I wondering ask, “Is it worth while.
Since all my notices arc read in vain,
And no one thinks of me, nor reads my signs.
To still keep on, when I might bring the Normal fame In athletics, in debate, or other lines?”
Patience replies, “Do not bemoan thy fate.
The school needs first the power you get for it.
It is the match by which the fire is lit.
They also serve who only stand and wait.”
A look of alarm crossed Vergin’s face when the instructor said that every time a man crosses his legs he puts just so much extra work on his heart.
“Good heavens! My heart is already overworked. It won't stand the least strain. My feet must be kept in seclusion under the seat."
A Modern Pandora
Last year the Normal students lived in a state of perfect bliss, not knowing that their standards were low. The teachers, too, were in good spirits, not knowing their deplorable condition. As the God of Learning scrutinized their attitude, he ascribed a good part of their beatific feeling to a lack of right standards.
“Standards must be raised.” he cried.
With this purpose in view he promptly assembled the lesser gods at Madison. In solemn counsel they decided to create Median Standards of Grading.
One beautiful wintry evening, while faculty and students were dancing in the gymnasium. they saw one of the lesser gods. Dr. Mercury-Theison. enter, carrying a heavy box. Dr. Pandora-Small immediately ceased dancing, and with his usual kindliness removed the burden from Mercury’s shoulder and served him with Fling Punch.
In the morning. Dr. Mercury-Theison asked to leave his burden with Dr. Pandora-Small for a few days, as he must go on a perilous journey. Dr. Pandora-Small, glad to be of service, consented to care for it.
Left alone with the mysterious casket, he became inquisitive. He drew near and examined it with great care. His heart beat so fast and loud that it seemed for a moment that he must choke. Mercury might soon be back and take the mysterious box away! At last resolved, he impulsively raised the lid.
No sooner was it opened than out flew myriads of queer little figures, alighting on teachers and students, pricking and stinging them into unwonted activity.
As Dr. Pandora-Small picked up the seemingly empty box, he heard a sweet little voice begging. “Please let me out! Oh! please, please, let me out!”
Upon opening the box again, out flew Hope. Her little wings were not yet dry. She flew hither and thither, telling all whom she met of the future betterment of the school system if only medium standards were adopted. But today even John Mann, after days of labor, shakes his head and says, “Who knows? Who knows?”
Pag 1R65!jf (puturr
With dancers gay was filled the floor—
They thought not at all of leaving,
When all at once marched through the door Eight men whose hearts were grieving.
Then woe unto those young folks dear—
For such a dreadful sight!—
A dead man on a fun’ral bier Came to the dance that night!
The girls turned white, and shrieked with fright The men were also nervous.
“Our poor School Spirit died tonight—
This is the fun’ral service.”
Poor spirit’s friends around the room— With preacher at the head,
Did march to take him to his tomb,
And there to mourn the dead.
But all at once—Oh, strange to tell,
A most dramatic moment—
That corpse jumped up and gave a yell. School Spirit lay but dormant!

A Roentgen Ray
Am I becoming merely brain? I don’t like what I formerly did. The idle talk at Wickert’s; the dramatic Bara, the necktie of flamboyant colors. I now read Tagore, Masefield, The Atlantic only. The Post is too crude for my tastes. When I pass along the street humanity at large has no interest for me.
I was returning from the library last night. Spring was in the air. 1 had read deeply and long and felt uplifted. “My individuality is sharply defining itself,” I mused.
Around the corner came a dray pulled by great shaggy horses. The harness broke. “Ah,” I thought, looking with momentary pity at the sweating drayman, “I will show that I am not above this good man.”
He had pulled the animals to a halt and stood looking at the broken harness. Before I could interpose my assistance, the break was mended with a clamp. How he put it on, I did not know. He turned. His sharp-featured face was dirt-smudged and tired, but alive. At the quick, intelligent gleam in his eyes I felt confused, for no apparent reason. I made an awkward movement—my books went tumbling into the dust. The drayman, bending quickly, recovered them for me; but as he did so he laughed. Was he laughing at me?
Ziegelbauer cuts out the fat,
J. Churm cuts out the lean,
And so they do their part to check The Prussian submarine.
What an Industrials learned in Psychology: “And another difference between man and ape,” said Dr. Small (a student in a front seat wiggles his ears grotesquely) is that the ape has greater control than man over the muscles around the ears, and can wiggle them with greater ease.” (Wig-wagging cut short.)

Why mourn for the exceedingly funny,
Great movie actor, John Bunny?
Why such sighing,
Why such crying?
Facsimile Schubert's just as sunny.
Professor (who muddled his point): Well, why don’t you answer?
Student in History: 1 beg your pardon. I was watchfully waiting for an overt act from you.
Oh, happy, happy student,
Who through this school has passed,
And has not had to have his head Filled up with Hili-gas.
Where’s our censor of English? Any disturbance by the students in the halls of the Industrial Building will be greatly appreciated by the Faculty.
An Arvidsonian Plea
“Now the NIGGA yell we'll try."
Thus did Oscar loudly cry.
N1GGA-N1GGA-HO POT AT A HALF PAST ALLIGATA—
Hither come some power divine,
Ope" your mugs or I'll close mine!"
“Still they’re dumb— wonder why?
Some one else please come and try.
Yell, oh, yell! If needs be, scream!
The more I shout the more you dream!
Nature soon will stupefy Oshkosh Normal—
RAH! RAH! RAH!
My nerves relax—my eyes grow dim—
Who’s that yellin'?—only Sim."

The Soul of Our Normal
am the soul of your school, therefore I may Call to you, ask of you, hope for you.
Hid you forget not I
When time’s hand fails to guide
Your ways and works.
Then may my spirit cry, “Awake!”
Or should I be silent.
Dreaming of other years.
Raise up your voices.
Call to me,
Bring to me Promise of future days Loyal and true.
This your debt to me,
This your glory—
That I belong to you.
Awaken me, call to me.
Then must I hear you.
Then must I answer,
Then must I live for you,
Watch over you, follow you.
Be the soul of your school To call to you, to ask of you,
To bid you forget not!
Not long have I been waiting here. But with my heart as watchman,
The moments have passed into hours. The hours into days.
Indeed this very joyous anticipation
But transfigures the delight
Which I have prayed may be mine;
And which if my prayers
Chance not to be answered must exalt
And lift my forlorn soul—
For in my waiting there is love.
